Does Acumatica or any partner have documented best practices for managing the publishing of customizations that can be shared with me?  I am looking for a customer facing document to explain the need for discipline and coordination where customizations are created by multiple sources.

 

Edit, I did find this blog post https://www.augforums.com/publishing-an-acumatica-customization-project/.  However, may main point is that I need to reinforce rule #2.

Old thread, but since I'm new in Customization I thought I would ask. I have multiple tenants, and as I understand if I publish/unpublish a customization in one, it will effect all tenants, am I right?

HI @dpruckus 

You are correct. It will effect all tenants. 

 

Is there a way to have a customization only for the test tenant?

 

I would recommend a separate “sandbox” instance for testing customizations whenever possible.

@gdow23 - Looking at this - https://www.augforums.com/publishing-an-acumatica-customization-project/ you shared above.

 

Rule Number 3 is the most important rule in my experience. Always publish from Production into all other tenants. Is you publish from a non production instance to all tenants, chances are high that the action will “Unpublish” all the customizations from the Production instance.

The article you found is great, I just wanted to add this to ensure you have more references. 

Have you looked at the help documentation?
